So I have two excuses for the break in posting.

The first, I took a relatively last minute trip to San Diego. My dad had to go for business and since I had some extra time on my hands, I tagged along. I have never been there, but I really want to go back now that I have. The weather was in the high 60's to the high 70's the 5 days we were there. To offer a comparison, the day we flew out, it was 14 and sleeting. Our plane had to be de-iced twice before we could take off.

While there, I was able to go to the zoo (which was awesome), the USS Midway aircraft carrier museum (also awesome), and the Imperial Sand Dunes (freaking amazing). I'd like to post pictures, but I can't find my camera....its here somewhere so I'll do it later.

The second reason I haven't posted in several days is pure procrastination. I really just turned my computer on for the first time since I got back.

Anyway, job front looks stagnate. I have a couple more contacts that I need to make which look promising. I have already saturated the actual job postings here locally.

Funny story from my day at the zoo. I was taking a few pictures of the polar bears. One was swimming and the other had been playing with a toy. It was a rope with several plastic balls strung on it. Apparently he got tired and laid down. The rope ended up laying on his side.

In walks a young teacher leading a group of probably kindergartners into the room. As she enters, she exclaims in that teacher voice "Look at the balls on that Polar Bear"

To the children, I hope that it sounded innocent, but to everyone else in the room, it was awkwardly hilarious.
